Angry Birds Holiday Special

Angry Birds Holiday Special

When Terence, the largest of the Angry Birds, is put in charge of the North Pole all his dreams come true. But, being in charge of delivering packages to every good little girl and boy in the world turns out to be a more difficult job than he could have imagined and his dreams quickly turn to nightmares! Will the rest of the Angry Birds be able to come in time to save the day? And where is Santa Claus anyway? Find out in this over-sized holiday special!
An extra long single story for the Angry Birds, getting into the holiday spirit, with humans! Santa and of course the birds and pigs. This is a nice holiday story with the birds finding their way into the human world and Santa finding his way to the human island. The birds reactions are excellent to the human world, while the pigs don’t feature until the end! I would say that for littler ones, this may be a little long, but can be split into parts for reading!
Angry Birds/Transformers #2
Angry Birds/Transformers #2
With the fate of Piggy Island hanging in the balance, will this be the Age of EGGStinction!? Continuing the craziest crossover this side of CYBERTRON!
Ok, so this is a big link up to the mobile game, but it makes a fun crossover for a short time – I’m not sure if I can take too much of this! But, the combination of the birds and pigs with the Transformers we all know is good at the time being. The reactions crossing between the Transformer and Angry Birds personalities is a lot of fun!
Dead Squad #3
Dead Squad #3
The Dead Squad has thirteen hours to live and only one hope: Vargas — a sultry ex-operative nursing both professional and personal grudges against Blake.
Dead Squad really hits the action in this issue – which is what we’ve been waiting for – I know they’ve only got a few hours to live, but we’re not getting all the sense of urgency – yet! Nevertheless this was an interesting issue, building on what we have already learnt about the science and the politacal ramifications, but also adding in some theology – see the cover for a clue!
V-Wars #8
V-Wars #8
They say that when you fight monsters you sometimes become a monster. In the bloody conclusion of the vampire super soldier arc, Joe Ledger, Luther Swann, and Big Dog are trapped in a secret underground called The Abyss. If they fall, the world of man will drown in an ocean of blood.
Trapped and claustrophobic, this issue finishes off the arc with more questions – who are the shadowy people involved, and how high up do they go. The reflections on our real situations are not lost on me, and this is proving to be a stand out book. Action, politics, vampires, super soldiers and a combination of all three!
 
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #41
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #41
“Attack on Technodrome” begins! Time is short as Krang accelerates his plan to terraform the Earth… which will kill all who live on it! A surprise alliance results in a daring plan–and the stakes have never been higher!
The ending starts here – we’ve been building towards all of this, and it could all go horribly wrong, with Donatello going his own way! We’ve got The Shredder in place – and his mutants, The Turtles and their mutants, Donatello, Casey Jones and of course Krang – if the final page doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will!
Little Nemo: Return To Slumberland #3
Little Nemo: Return To Slumberland #3
After the startling events of the previous issue, Nemo is quite surprised to find himself in Slumberland once again, but not altogether unhappy. While the princess, Bon-bon, and Candy Kid sleep, Flip takes Nemo on a garden tour until they encounter the wondrous Tessellated Tower–the most remarkable thing Nemo has ever seen. Meanwhile, the princess awakens to discover that Nemo has run off… and with the horrid Flip, of all people!
Return To Slumberland is an excellent comics – which appeals to kids and adults on different levels. I find the style so European, and sometimes this doesn’t appeal, but I think this should. This issue has Nemo and Flip exploring some of the underbelly of Slumberland and getting a different view – it’s enjoyable, colourful and surreal!
